Rock Creek Trailhead

Area Status: Open
Rock Creek TH

This trailhead is named for a nearby waterway and has a small developed parking area. It serves as the western access point to Ochoco Mountain Trail (#823). The Forest Service has recently completed maintenance on portions of the trail accessed from this trailhead, so it should be relatively unobstructed. More work is intended in the near future.
